Introducing Raw Dancing: Getting Down & Dirty & Beyond Ego

Introducing Raw Dancing: Getting Down & Dirty & Beyond Ego

Don’t you love it when you have a life-altering moment? One of those moments when everything falls into place and you experience absolute clarity and resolution?

One of these ‘moments’ happened to me some months back. I stumbled across something so profound and consciousness shifting that I knew I had reached above and beyond, and had become a new person.

It happened on the day I became a raw dancer.

The moment found me whilst in bed, curled up and feeling low. I had had a major change in the structure of my business and needed to ‘let someone go.’ That someone was not only a valued employee but a dear friend, so I was trapped in a conundrum.

My head was a vice, and my body was stagnant with stress. I couldn’t find resolution or peace.

Then came a flash of inspiration, “Move your body,” so I pressed play on the first thing I could find on my itunes, and started to dance. Within a few moments, I was feeling less heady and more grounded, and as I continued to move, I could feel the stress sliding off.

It was peeling off me and moving out into the floor beneath me. Almost trance-like, I started to jump up and down, just doing what my body wanted, and as this happened the ‘peeling’ quickened.

My movements then became ecstatic as I started to gyrate, thrash around and shake (not simultaneously!). I was getting down and dirty with it, following the flow of what my body wanted to do.

Then suddenly the ‘peeling ecstasy’ ceased, and I was engulfed in a delicious nothingness. It was as if I’d ceased to be and was consumed by emptiness. It was thrilling to be dissolved, and oh, so freeing!

It was then that my dancer was born.

Ever since that day, I’ve been dancing regularly. I’ve been jumping, thrashing, gyrating, wiggling, wobbling, swaying and succumbing to that place of ‘the empty.’ The space in which, momentarily, I can shed my human shape, return to my core and merge with unity.

It’s become a spiritual practice and when I do it, I remain vibrantly alive.

Being vibrantly alive though, is hard to do. Mostly because we are so conditioned.

We are taught to constantly monitor ourselves and ‘check up’ that we are behaving properly and looking perfect.

It’s forbidden to be too dominant, boisterous, forthright, sexy, spontaneous, affectionate, gregarious and extroverted. And it’s ‘not cool’ to be introverted, self-conscious, shy, hermit-like, and sexually uninterested.

We must always look beautiful, hot and fashionable (C’mon girls, we all do it. That ‘random post pic’ to facebook is mostly crafted and of us looking our best).

We’re all forced to walk a fine line – society’s tight-rope – of what is acceptable, and frankly I’m tired of it. Becoming a raw dancer has gifted me with a space that I, every day, can jump into and free myself from the noose of conditioning around my neck.

It allows me to return to purity and wholeness, and just be me, for a while again. It’s awesome.

Raw dancing has been a huge hit with every person I’ve shared it with. My private clients are using it to access their ‘core self’ and their life purpose blue-print. They are getting down and dirty with it to go beyond ego and ‘be.’

Liberate yourself. Get over yourself, and raw dance.

in White Light + Love,


P.S. Stay tuned! Next week I’II share with you my tips about how you can find your feet with raw dancing. Then you can use it too, to dissolve yourself and dance with divinity!

    I love it!

    How funny that only an hour ago before reading this, I intuitively shook my hips and expressed a desire to dance more?

    When I let loose like that, I feel like it is the way I need to be; that it’s my true essence, and when I forget that that’s the way I crave to show up, I also forget my true, free, sensuous, grounded, creative self.

    A wonderful practice & addition to a modern mystic lifestyle.


    Thank you Belinda xx

    That is very cool! A few months ago I joined a Nia class and so 2 x a week at 7:15 am a group of gorgeous ladies get together and dance to really good, loud music until we can’t help but feel awesome. I totally love it. It really raises your vibes and makes you feel so good that you dance in the car on the way home! Not as ‘raw’ as yours but liberating none the less 🙂

    I love your post, music and dancing helps us free ourselves and get up onto a different dimension, I feel that, too and I will definitely try that out, as good as I may!!!
    I love what you said about that noose around our neck, having to look and appear to our best constantly. I feel pationately about that. Can’t we be free sometimes at least?
    Just be ourselves for a little while? We are still beautiful, wonderful beings, never mind whether we are dressed perfectly and the make up is facionable. 😉

    How freeing! I have loved dance since I was a child, but it wasn’t until recently that I too gave myself permission to just MOVE my body! It is such a spiritual act, and some of the most bonding moments I’ve had with my man is when we play “sacred dance!”

    Yessss!!!! I have been dancing pretty much all of my life and I agree that it’s fantastic for lifting my spirit. This year I am so thankful to the Universe, as it has recently decided that I am to share this love of dance with other women through teaching. Not only am I getting paid to move my body, but I also have the blessing of watching how profoundly it lifts my students’ spirits as well 🙂

    I love this! I have been raw dancing for a few months now. Although I refer to it as dancing with the Devine! It’s a beautiful practice that hits me randomly. I will pump up some great tunes and just get down and boogie in my lounge room. I too feel an overwhelming sense of happiness and connection with my true soul when I do my dancing with the Devine! Thank you for another lovely post Belinda.
    Love & Light

    Belinda, I love this post!!! It truly resonated with me and reminded of my love for dance, however, it’s been a long while since I’ve danced. This post reminded me to express myself without fear. Thank you!

    Love It!

    I love love my mad mental crazy hyped dance around the house moments too!!! Makes ya feel just sooo alive n happy n excited, and everything you mentioned! My happy mental dancing attacks usually happen when I begin a clean house mission! Ha, and obviously the housework usually always suffers, but who cares when you’re that happy! 🙂
